Cool PSD Restoration! ~plenty of pics~

So my dad found this guy who had a '95 PSD XLT Ext. Cab Long Bed truck, that had caught on fire under the dash. At the time my dad was needing body parts for his truck, so we brought the truck home for $2500. My dad (Doug) said when we got it home that it was too nice of a truck to tear apart, that we shuold fix it. We knew the motor was worth at least the $2500 we paid for it, and it had 168k on it.

Here are some pictures I want to share with u guys of how we fixed it...

There is the truck as it sat when we towed it home.


Here is the damage...


Another one...


Under the Dash...


Seats had melted plastic stuck all over the fronts.


Tearing it apart in the shop...


Got it apart back to the firewall (pretty easy actually)


"Stole" a complete dash for only $100 (Heater Box and all)


Still disassembling it...


Repainted the firewall.


Mounted Heater Box.


After Dying the dash...


Sat it in the truck...


Installed the steering column.


After Safelite installed a new windshield...


We swapped the chip from the back of the speedometer onto a new one, so that it shows the original miles. And then installed the cluster along with bezel, and trim pieces.


There it is, all finished.


Seats cleaned up alright.


Truck is in great condition, the paint looks like it was sprayed yesterday.


We stuck some used mudders on it for now, cause we dont want to buy a whole set of tires for those ugly wheels, we're gonna wait till we get some more wheels.



HAHA guess how much we have in this truck.

I like comments

yah around 3k. its sad that the windshield costed twice as much as the complete dash lol.

Yeah we took every panel out of the inside of it, and cleaned them. We had to redo the headliner also, and cleaned the carpet. You cant even smell smoke in it.
